LOCATION / THE NEIGHBORHOOD
La Barceloneta, the charming quartier by the sea and just next door to both the beach (literally a 5' walk) and the city center. This area which just a few decades ago was home to fishermen and sailors and nowadays puts together that old school genuine vibe along with a modern touch on a fantastic blend. Here you will be perfectly located for exploring Barcelona's classic old neighborhoods and landmarks: The beaches and harbour, El Born, La Rivera, the Gothic quartier, Las Ramblas, Plaza Cataluña, the great park of La Ciutadella.. Or a 5 minute walk will take you to many options of public transportation, in case you feel like getting to all the other marvels that this beautiful city has to offer.
My building is located in a sunny park with trees and a playground, in a beautiful and very central street just next door to the Barceloneta fresh market with its stalls overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and Spanish and Catalan specialties, and also a large supermarket with a wide selection of products at a very convenient price.
Just stone's throw from the apartment you can find the famous Baluard Bakery (one of the best in town) that sells delicious freshly made baguettes and artisan breads as well as a small selection of pastries and also any number of great shops, bars and restaurants from inexpensive to pricey.
Basically, and excellent place to be, with easy access to all the entertainment but where you can also relax and enjoy a good sleep cause our street stays nicely quiet during the night.

Susana's place is perfectly situated in La Barceloneta, and it was really nice there in the winter time. She's a super friendly host, and speaks perfect English. The place is rather small, but Susana is a pro and knows her way around other people. Mutual respect works well, and you can be as free as a bird in this place.
The appartment is well situated very close to beach and a good point from which to explore Barcelona. However, the house block and house itself is one that makes no architect proud and has a bit of "ghetto" feel to it. The appartment looks significantly larger in the pictures than in reality. Especially that applies to bathroom, so when one sits on a toilet pot, one can stare at the oposing wall 1 inch away. Shower was dirty with hair and some other black stuff that only microbiologists can truly admire.
The appartment has 4 rooms - one for common use, one for host, two for rent. Host's rooms is 1m away from the rented rooms so the private room does not seem very private at all.
All in all, this appartment is not a hotel alternative, but a hostel alternative and better suited for (website hidden) than renting especially at EUR 100 per night.
This review is simply inaccurate, so just to clarify a few points: 1/ La Barceloneta is a painteresque, laid back, work-class neighborhood by the beach, not a posh area at the financial district (fortunately i must say), but calling it a 'ghetto' is not just far from reality but also plain wrong, that to say the least. 2/ During your stay in my place the second room that i let wasnt occupied. As soon as i spent most of the time either working outside or chilling in my room you pretty much had the whole apartment for yourselves. I dont know exactly what you mean with 'lack of privacy' but taking on account that you rented a room in a shared apartment i cant possible think of a more ideal scenario than the one that you were provided with. 3/ I am extremely concerned about the house cleaning, so it is mentioned at the house Rules&Manual and the guests are expected to respect it. Not just the bathroom but the entire house is pristine clean so Re to the 'shower dirty with hair etc' part, please ask your partner about it, not me. I in fact collected her left overs a couple of times. 4/ I very much tried to be helpful, friendly and accommodating with you and the impression that i get is that you couldn't care less about my efforts. This is not meant to be hotel, Airbnb offers the chance to experience cities from a local, homey environment and the very positive reviews that i received along the way makes me believe that i know a bit about this concern. With all due respect but you don't seem to be the kind of guest that would suit into a shared place, specially if the apartment is not located in the poshest part of town. I am sorry that you didn't have the time of your life here but if you were expecting to have noone around and live in a fancy skyrocket hotel style in the financial district then you should have invested a few minutes reading the detailed info provided in my ad and save us both a very disappointing experience.
Susana is an unbelievable host, I felt at home and at ease from the moment she opened the door. Everything about her is gentle, caring and warm. The room itself is beautiful -- very clean and gorgeously decorated. As mentioned by others, the location is excellent too, with the beach and many cool restaurants, shops & cafes just up the streets and good metro access (Barceloneta), or you can even walk to many of the city's tourist attractions. I couldnt have been happier with my stay, absolutely loved it -- 11/10 for this experience. Thank you so much for your hospitality and kindness! Im sure we will meet again. :)
My husband and I stayed with Susana for four nights. Her apartment is beautiful! It gets so much light and has lots of plants, which I love. Since we had never been to Barcelona before, I wasn't sure which neighborhood to stay in, but Barceloneta ended up being perfect for us (and would probably be even better in the summer when the beach is more appealingly warm). The apartment is just a couple of blocks away from a main street with many restaurants that try to attract tourists, but the rest of the neighborhood has a more homey feel to it. The most touristy neighborhoods were still within easy walking distance.
Note that there is one bathroom in the apartment which is shared with Susana and any guests who might be staying in the third bedroom. It worked out just fine for us, but I can see how it might be an issue for some people.
Susana herself speaks pretty fluent English, and is very friendly. We'd love to return to Susana's place and get more tapas!
I had a wonderful stay at Susana's place. She is a great and friendly host who went out of her way to make me comfortable. The apartment is great too: the room spacy and light with lots of room to store stuff. The bed slept great, it was only a few minutes walk to bars and El Born and the beaches. Loved her kitties too
I had a wonderful time in Barceloneta. The room is nice and spacy und Susanas apartment is a quiet place and in a perfectly central location. I wish I could have stayed longer!
Great hostess, Susana is really friendly, helpful and happy to share her house with guests. She booked a taxi for me in Spanish, let me print off some tickets, and let me do washing. She was also happy to chat about her home city and offer tips for visiting.
Her English is perfect too - makes it much easier to visit Barca having local language and knowledge!
The location of the apartment is great for the beach, metro access, and easy to find great restaurants, shops, nightlife all a short walk away.
A litte bit of noise in the evening with bar/restaurant nearby, but not past midnight, so got plenty of good sleep.
I stayed at susana's flat twice during my visit to catalonia. once when i arrived from NY when I was there for 4 nights and again when i returned from my stint north to costa brava. it was such a great place to call home while in barcelona. first, the place is super clean and well designed/decorated. susana is super great with staying up on communications regarding reservations, directions, introductions to anyone else if the other room is occupied and im a little allergic to kitties so she was great about keeping the door closed before i got there and respecting that while i stayed. the location was perfect for me because its right near the beach which always seems like a good way to go ;). there is an awesome bike rental place just down the street (barcelona is great for biking) it was the most affordable one in town too. this meant i got to either start or end the day of sightseeing and checking out the city with some mediterranean swimming (plus mojitos!) susana really keeps the place in great shape. she was clear on how she wanted to share space to keep the neighbors happy and so that we all had a good experience. this works for me. there is also an elevator which isnt super common in barceloneta and is very handy for having a suitcase! there is also an AWESOME coffee shop right across the street, a bodega (as we call them in ny) downstairs, the barceloneta market half a block away and a super close walk to all the great neighborhoods of the city. cant wait to go back!
susana was a great host!!
